Adaptive Snowsports



CADS - Alpine Adaptive Snowsports


The Canadian Assoication for Disabled Skiing (CADS) is the National and an International leader in alpine adaptive snowsports.



CADS fosters the development and delivery of best practices through partnerships, leadership, training, and certification, so individuals with a disability have the opportunity for healthy recreation and competition in alpine adaptive snowsports.

Instructor Academy has invited the CADS to prepare a course that will fulfil the requirements of our additional disciplines, as well as the requirements of EFPEM in Andorra. The participants will finish the course with a CADS Level 1 Certification process.

The structure of the course is yet to be completely finalised; but here is a draft outline.

We will introduce the teaching methods, equipment and adaptation to teach beginner levels of the following disciplines:

  • Visually impaired ski/board
  • 3 tracking
  • 4 tracking
  • Sit ski
  • Snowboard
  • Autism and cognitive impairments


A pre-requisite for this Course is that particiants are either CSIA or CASI certified OR have completed 18 hours CSIA/CASI teaching methodology. For example even if a participant has failed the CSIA 1, they would still qualify as they have had 18 hours experience during the Level 1 course.
